John Broome/Gil Kane/Joe GiellaGreen Lantern Omnibus Vol 1 (hardcover) ... Book
DC Comics, 2010. New Copy ... $22.99 75.00
One of the greatest runs of any hero of the silver age of comics – presented here in a lavish volume that collects the first 21 issues of Green Lantern, plus his initial three appearances in Showcase! Green Lantern really helped redefine the role of the superhero in the science age – thanks to very smart, snappy, imaginative writing from John Broome – who'd penned plenty of science fiction before coming to comics – and thanks also to amazing artwork from Gil Kane, who's at the height of his powers on these early issues! The team is incredible – one of those DC Comics unstoppable powers – and their run here is a nonstop stream of cool, creative stories that still hold up strongly all these many years later. Most inks are by Joe Giella, some are by Murphy Anderson – and the book is full color, very heavy 636 pages, and even reproduces all of those great covers from the 60s! Book

✨✧ Dark ShadowsDark Shadows – The Complete Original Series Vol 4 (hardcover) ... Book
Hermes, 2012. New Copy ... $10.99 49.99
Pretty great horror comics from the early 70s – the surprisingly long, healthy run of Gold Key's Dark Shadows comic books – which actually ran longer at the newstand than the show did on TV! The comic's strength comes from some great talents – 50s horror artist Joe Certa, still hard at work to give the images a nice edge – and DC Comic scribe Arthur Drake, who penned some of the weirder comics of the silver age – on board to give these stories a bit more of an edge than you might expect! The hardcover book does a great job of presenting the material – including painted covers by George Wilson – and features issues 22 through 28, plus additional text – all in a full color, 192 page volume!

HeapHeap Vol 2 – June 1948 to December 1950 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
One of the coolest comic features of the 40s – and one that had a surprisingly long life too – born first in the pages of Airboy Comics, but more than enough of a legend on its own! The Heap is a kind of man/monster figure that predates Swamp Thing or Man Thing by decades – an early, and surprisingly strong attempt at this sort of character – born in the swamp during WWII, but served up here in stories that stretch way past that initial moment – with great reproductions of the rare issues in which he appeared – all in full color, on heavy white paper, wrapped up in a solid hardcover volume! Marvel Comics legend Roy Thomas presents the material – and artists in this volume include Carmine Infantino, John Belfi, Leonard Starr, Paul Reinman, Ernest Schroeder, and others. 240 pages, hardcover, and in full color.

Mick HoughtonBecoming Elektra – The True Story Of Jac Holzman's Visionary Record Label ... Book
Jawbone, 2010. New Copy ... $9.99 29.95
A wonderfully detailed story of one of the coolest record labels ever – a book that really gets at the huge range of folk, blues, psych, and other wonderful sounds issued by Elektra Records! The tome is massive – big enough to feature a lot of full color pictures, but with a much stronger emphasis on text than usual for this sort of volume – with an especially deep look into the early days of Zac Holzman, and his initial love of pre-rock modes before the bigger shift to more popular Elektra modes of the late 60s. The book is over 300 pages, and is past the halfway mark before The Doors even come into the picture – which really gives you an idea of the kind of detail involved, The book also features a full Elektra discography in the back – at least until the point at which Holzman left the label – and the whole thing's honestly one of the best accounts of a label's formation we've ever read. 304 pages, oversized, with some color images.

PS Artbooks (UK), 2011. New Copy ... About May 1, 2016
One of the first-ever horror comics – presented here in all its lurid glory! Adventures Into The Unknown is a landmark publication – one of the first to really do the kind of creepy, shocking stories that would later turn up in EC Comics and other publishers of the early 50s pre-code horror years! The stories are great – and often done with a quality of writing that was far above most of the competition, with a level that doesn't just rely on shock and gore, but also has a great sense of narrative and character as well. And the artwork is always solid – very striking, very vivid, and very well reproduced in this great full color volume! The book is almost 300 pages long, and features five rare issues – with art by Leonard Starr, Al Feldstein, Edvard Moritz, John Celardo, King Ward, and others. Book

PS Artbooks (UK), 2013. New Copy ... About May 1, 2016
Crazy comics from the early days of TV – the surprisingly great Captain Video comic, done in support of the campy television show of the same name! The book presents the first six issues of the rare comic book – all with great color reproductions, and a vividness that surpasses any vintage issues you might find – if you can afford them at all! And the stories and art are way better than you might guess – as the comic came from Fawcett, home of Captain Marvell and some other top-shelf publications – and not just a quickie knockoff press. Comics legend Roy Thomas provides great context for the material in his introduction – and the long issues feature excellent artwork by George Evans, who'd later do more famous horror material for EC Comics. The book is full color, hardcover, with heavy paper – almost 300 pages in length, and even features all the original ads from the comics too! Book

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952. New Copy ... About May 1, 2016
One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – handled in this volume by Bob Powell, Rudy Palais, Howard Nostrand, Lee Elias, Al Avison, Warren Kremer, and others – in stories that include "Formula For Death", "Headless Horror", "Green Killer", "The Brid Of The Crab", "The Swamp Monster", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover Book
